Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Friday Music Prompt #1: “Jeter un Sort/Put A Spell On” by Alex Nevsky 

Welcome to another exciting week at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. My name is Mandibelle16 (you can call me Mandi or Amanda) and I will be taking over the Friday Music Prompt from  Sanaa. All our best wishes to her in her new endeavours!

For this week’s prompt I’m sharing a song I’ve had stuck in my head the past couple of weeks. I thought it might be fun to highlight one side of Canada’s cultural history with an artist named Alex Nevsky, who was born in Granby, Quebec, Canada in 1986. His third album Nos Eldoras was released in 2016 and the song I’ve chosen is called “Jeter un Sort,” featuring Coeur de Pirate. I will provide both French and English lyrics.

Use this song as inspiration for any form of creative expression (including but not limited too short stories, poems, lyrics, artwork, photography, covers, music/dance videos (etc.)

Alternatively, If you are a musician use this as an opportunity to showcase your own work.

English Lyrics: “Jeter in Sort” or “Put A Spell On” by Alex Nevsky

Whatever that the time and the promises

If long time is only clumsiness

And I wait that always your look

Wich arises on my lips

***
Whatever the blue of the ocean

It’s the emptiness that I finally see

Taken here and nothing to get away

From our hearts so intimately linked

***
I casted a spell

Without really knowing what we would become

Body to body we disappear

Through the goodbye

***
And I gave everything to this cause

This time its enough

Let us at least go

Let us at least live

****

Let me at least live

***
Whatever the beauty of forgiveness

No birds will die if we go

Each for ourselves to the sad days

Everything deceives us, but do we really want better

***
Is it necessary to watch

Far in front of ourselves

To understand that we are lost

The horizon is maybe no longer in your eyes

Of precision, but never again of fire

***
I casted a spell

Without really knowing what we would become

Body to body we disappear

Through the goodbye

***
And I gave everything to this cause

This time its enough

Let us at least go

Let us at least live

***
I casted a spell

Without really knowing what we would become

Body to body we disappear

Through the goodbye

***
And I gave everything to this cause

This time its enough

Let us at least go

Let us at least live

***
Let me at least live

***

French Lyrics: “Jeter un Sort” by Alex Nevesky

Qu’importe le temps et les promesses

Si longtemps ce n’est que maladresse

Et j’attends de toujours ton regard

***
Qui se pose sur mes lèvres en retard

***
Qu’importe le bleu de l’océan

C’est le vide que je vois finalement

Pris ici et rien pour s’arracher

De nos coeurs si intimement liés

***

J’ai jeté un sort

Sans trop savoir ce qu’on deviendrait

Corps à corps on disparait

À travers l’aurevoir

***
Et j’ai tout donné à cette cause

Cette fois c’est assez

Laisse nous au moins partir

Laisse nous au moins vivre

***
Laisse moi au moins vivre

***

Qu’importe la beauté du pardon

Aucun n’oiseaux ne mourra si nous partons

Chacun pour soi vers les jours malheureux

Tout nous déçois, mais veux-ton vraiment mieux

***
Est-ce nécessaire de regarder

Loin devant soi

Pour comprendre qu’on c’est égaré

L’horizon n’est peut-être plus dans tes yeux

De précision, mais plus jamais de feux
***

J’ai jeté un sort

Sans trop savoir ce qu’on deviendrait

Corps à corps on disparait

À travers l’aurevoir

***
Et j’ai tout donné à cette cause

Cette fois c’est assez

Laisse nous au moins partir

Laisse nous au moins vivre

***
J’ai jeté un sort

Sans trop savoir ce qu’on deviendrait

Corps à corps on disparait

À travers l’aurevoir

***
Et j’ai tout donné à cette cause

Cette fois c’est assez

Laisse nous au moins partir

Laisse nous au moins vivre

***
Laisse moi amusions vivre

About mandibelle16

Lovely to meet you: I'm a Canadian girl who loves the local sports scene in her city. The NHL and CFL are my regular sports domains but I've been getting into the NFL games as well. Go Oilers! Excited for our Oilers, Stanley Cup contenders last year and soon to be champions in the following seasons (knock on wood!). Pleased with the Eskimo's winning season so far. Otherwise, I enjoy Hatha yoga, walks in the river valley, drawing with pencil and charcoal, makeup and hairstyles and that whole beauty niche: as well as, taking classes or short seminars on a variety of subjects -- but especially creative writing and art! As well, I love dogs but I can't have one right now and I'm hoping to soon. In the mean time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, especially in the summer and fall here when the weathers warm and there are so many festivals and activities to do and places in the city to explore. I am absolutely in love with writing. I'm slowly editing a novel, check me out on Wattpad @mandibelle16. The novel is called 'How Was Last Night?' by A.M. Wilson and is a paranormal romance. I haven't had much time to work on it lately doing some other small projects. On my blog I take part in flash fiction challenges, short stories, poetry, and some nonfiction pieces. Nonfiction writing includes blogger/writer interviews, current events, quotes, entertainment, fashion, beauty, and relationships. Sometimes I share a bit about my life. Check out some of my published poetry and short fiction on www.spillwords.com, Silver Bell Press Online, and SickLitMagazine.com., and herheartpoetry.con on Instagram. Happy to have you stop by and browse as long as you please! If you have any questions or suggestions you can get ahold of me through my blog Contact Page!

    Félications, Amanda, pour nous inspirer les vendredis. I just love this song!I was looking for the lyrics [I had not scrolled down to see you had posted them] and noticed the same song title by Laurence Jalbert which is another Québecoise but totally different…more a country style. I am actually from the Eastern townships near Granby and went to school there; I am going to check out his CD today so I can pop it in the car as I drive in that area this weekend.

      That’s crazy there are so many versions of it. I’ll have to listen to the one you suggested. Happy you like the song and good luck with school. Nice to see another Canadian on here 🙂
